Mother’s Day is May 8, 2022, which is just around the corner. While a thoughtful gift is always appreciated, we say that quality family time is the ultimate treat (that means no squabbling). You could bond over trying a new activity together; pamper yourselves with a staycation; or spend a leisurely afternoon curled up on the couch for a movie marathon.
For those keeping it cosy at home, here are our picks for the best movies to watch with your mom—or in her honour—for Mother’s Day 2022, including coming-of-age tales and lighthearted flicks that family members of all ages can enjoy.
1. Lady Bird
Directed by Greta Gerwig and set in her native Sacramento, California, Lady Bird follows a high school senior (Saoirse Ronan) as she navigates a turbulent but loving relationship with her mum (Laurie Metcalf), who works tirelessly as a nurse to maintain the family’s livelihood after her husband loses his job. Documenting the highs and lows of growing up, this movie may make you reflect on your own adolescence and relationships.
